In a weird flip of occasions, it appears that evidently Hidden Path’s unannounced Dungeons & Dragons game is alive and effectively, after latest experiences it had been cancelled. Earlier this week, Bloomberg reported that D&D proprietor Wizards Of The Coast had cancelled 5 unannounced tasks, naming Otherside Entertainment and Hidden Path as two of the studios affected. In a Twitter post final night time, Hidden Path emphasised “Our epic D&D challenge with Wizards continues to be taking place!”; Bloomberg, in the meantime, stand by their reporting.
In response to Hidden Path, Bloomberg’s reporter Jason Schreier defended his authentic article. “This is a really uncommon and really unlucky state of affairs, however we stand by our reporting,” he mentioned. “Both a supply and a Wizards of the Coast spokesperson informed Bloomberg on Tuesday that Hidden Path’s D&D game is cancelled.” So in easy phrases, we’ve got experiences that the writer’s spokesperson says the game is canned, whereas the studio’s social media account claims it isn’t.
We do not know a lot about Hidden Path’s thriller challenge (we’re cannot even be certain if it is taking place), however the studio’s web site shares just a few extra particulars. On their careers page, Hidden Path say, “Currently, we’re engaged on a AAA open-world, third-person, single participant RPG set within the Dungeons & Dragons universe.” The devs beforehand labored on the Defense Grid collection – a enjoyable group of tower defence games – so their D&D challenge could be a foray into a brand new style for them. Otherside Entertainment, the opposite studio named in Bloomberg’s report, have not commented on the standing of their games, two of that are already introduced.
I’m pretty sure this is not the final we’ll hear about this D&D drama, however it’s not all unhealthy information for D&D followers. Baldur’s Gate 3 escapes the jail bars of early entry this August, and people of us cursed with being D&D video game nerds can look ahead to the digital tabletop expertise in Unreal Engine 5.
